That’s the H.M.S. Hood, a British Battle Ship from the WWI-WWII era that was sunk in 1941. In real life, it’s over 850 feet long, and weights in at over 49,000 tons fully loaded. A worthy sailing force that you wouldn’t want to mess with.
Well, Ed Diment decided to make a LEGO model to minifig scale, it’s massive, by LEGO standards. It’s 20 feet long, and weighs in at about 200lbs. A far cry from the original, but, massive for LEGOs.
It took him 7 months to finish using just under 100,000 bricks. Lucky for him he had most of those LEGOs, otherwise according to him, it would probably cost around $15,000 to build it all new now. The gun turrets are moterized, too! Now, if only they fired stuff…
He says there are some museums that were interested in it, I am interested in those museums now.
Below is an assortment of photos from his Flickr account with the obglitory cat photo included.
